You mean Fifty Shades of Black wasn't nominated?
A double standard regardless of genre.
Here's a question, If a white writer and director creates an all black movie, how am I supposed to interpret that? I want to be as PC as possible, show me the blackest way to be fair.
The guilt is killing me!

Spike Lee, Jada Pinkett Smith call for Oscars boycott over lack of diversity
Chris Rock calls the Oscars the 'white BET Awards'
Calls for a boycott of the Academy Awards are growing over the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences' second straight year of mostly white nominees, as Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith each said Monday that they will not attend this year's ceremony.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Lee said he "cannot support" the "lily white" Oscars.
Jada tweeted 'people of color' are rarely recognized for our artistic accomplishments. Should people of color refrain from participating all together?
I can understand why some people might get upset, but do you think this is going too far?
How is it alright for there to be racially exclusive awards (BET), but if a NON racially exclusive awards just happens to not choose Black actors, despite having done so in the past, people get all up in arms?
I thought this was suppose to be about acting, not skin color and the perception of entitlement.
